  • Burren has live Irish music 7 nights/week & fantabulous Guinness. While you're there chat with Java behind the bar - don't worry, you'll eventually be able to decipher his thick Irish accent.
  • skip the Guinness and try a Belhaven instead!
  • They have Killkenny on tap! My favorite!
  • Irish music playing in the front room as well as live music in the back room. There will also be corned beef and cabbage and other Irish favorites served all day.
  • Stand-up comedy show on most Wednesdays at 10pm.
  • A geniune "Irish Pub" with live music, quality Guinness, and pub food.
  • The beer's nice and all, but do yourself a favor and order a basket of fries with curry on the side.
  • Just go with a $3 pabst
  • The only place I've seen with Harpoon Winter Warmer. Yay!
  • I freaking love coming here when I'm in town. The chowder is some of the best I've ever had, and the fish & chips are great. I know everyone says to get a Guinness, but go Harpoon here
  • Fun place! Live music in one room and open mic in the other! And beer!
